  1. Multi-Source Vertical Obstruction Generation

    SBC: AERIAL VISION, INC.            Topic: N04015

    In support of low flying air vehicle missions, the Navy seeks improved capabilities to detect automatically, geo-locate, and determine the height above ground of vertical obstructions over operational areas. Of importance is the ability to assess the horizontal and vertical accuracy of detection results and detect obstructions above specified heights. The solution must be able to process and fuse ...

  2. Aerosol Mass Spectrometer for Aircraft Sampling using Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N03227

    Aerosol particles play an important role in visibility, acid deposition, climate, and human health, although large uncertainties remain in quantifying their impacts which depend on their chemical composition and atmospheric transformations. An innovative aerosol mass spectrometer (AMS)has been recently designed to fill a critical need for size-resolved, quantitative chemical composition data on a ...

  5. Nanostructure-Enhanced Bulk Thermoelectric Materials

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: OSD04EP3

    The use of thermoelectric devices as alternative energy sources has been investigated with limited success. Manufacturing costs and limited power generation efficiency have prevented the economical, large-scale production and use of the thermoelectric devices as a viable alternative energy source. Agiltron has proposed an innovative nanostructure-enhanced thermoelectric material that will integrat ...

  6. Portable, Hand-Held Inspection System for Aircraft Components

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N03018

    New technology is needed for the nondestructive detection and characterization of defects in aerospace structures, particularly those with compex shapes that are used in high stress environments that accelerate degradation. Existing nondestructive evaluation (NDE) techniques, based on ultrasonics, eddy-currents, and x-radiography, do not have the capabilities needed for real-time defect detection ...

  7. Microscopic Damage Detection and Remaining Life Assessment of Printed Circuit Boards

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N03158

    Field inspection of printed circuit boards (PCB), and assessment of their condition is critical for the readiness of military equipment. A new technology is needed that is portable and able to inspect PCBs, yet can perform sophisticated characterization of defects, and predict the remaining life of the electronics. The technology proposed by RMD could revolutionize the nondestructive evaluation ...

  8. Dynamic, Adaptive Life Models for Drive Train Clutches

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N03028

    ALPHATECH proposes, in conjunction with our partners, Rolls-Royce North America, a novel approach to the on-line prognostic modeling of drivetrain clutch systems, combining dynamic modeling of the clutch transients with physics-of-failure based hazard modeling. In particular, our effort is focused towards the F35B LiftFan clutch, to which our models and techniques will be applied. We extend our ...

  9. Optimized and Rapid Employment of Loitering Weapons in Response to Fires

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N03176

    ALPHATECH has developed a prototype planning tool, dubbed RATTLER, for Robust Automated Tactical Tomahawk Loitering and Engagement Router, in Phase I of this SBIR effort. RATTLER uses a variety of optimization techniques to construct missile trajectories that maximize target "coverage": the ability of the collective salvo of missiles to be redirected to a new set of aim-points. A RATTLER-generat ...

  10. Self Assessment Tool for Intelligent Prognosis (SATIP)

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N03196

    ALPHATECH proposes an innovative prognostic and diagnostic reasoning assessment tool for Prognostic Health Management systems. The Self Assessment Tool for Intelligent Prognosis (SATIP) is focused towards prognosis of gradual failures in complex mechanical systems such as fatigue failures, in which prognostics is most beneficial. The goal is to ensure that the prognostic model is used within the ...
